Remember God

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- November 15, 2012

“Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and the LORD your God redeemed you. That is why I give you this command today.” Deuteronomy 15:15

God gives good memories to His children. The foundation of what He did has freed them by His great grace and love. Sin shackles the soul with insensitive servitude. Its memories are filled with fear, false hopes and fleeting pleasures. But redemption from Jesus buys back those who step onto the auction block of belief. Sin brings heartache, but Christ brings comfort and joy. God memories make a heart smile in gratitude and obedience.

Remember we were lost, but now we are found. Remember we lived for ourselves, but now we live for others. Remember we were guilty, but now we are forgiven. Remember we were selfish, but now we are unselfish. Remember we were proud, but now we are humble. Remember God was distant, but now He is our heavenly Father. Remember Jesus was a good teacher, but now He is our Savior. Remember the Holy Spirit was strange, but now He is our personal guide. We remember God and our faith flourishes.

“They remembered that God was their Rock, that God Most High was their Redeemer.” Psalm 78:35

Do you suffer from spiritual amnesia? Do you regularly recall the radical love of Christ? He loves you as a beautiful image of His creation. He loves you to the point of laying down His life on your behalf, so by faith you can die to sin and live His resurrected life. The Lord’s ransomed love for you is a special memory of sacrifice. He died for you.

Yes, remember how He brought you out of citizenship in this world to become a citizen of His kingdom. You serve a risen Savior, not a lying serpent. Your allegiance is to Almighty God, not the almighty dollar. You walk in the light, not in the darkness. Your soul is prayerful, not self-reliant. Your body is a temple of the Spirit, not an object of abuse. Your mind is renewed by truth. Thus, remember who you are: a child of God!

“Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” Ephesians 2:11-13

Prayer: Heavenly Father, bring to my memory Your generous salvation and love.

    Thank God we have been saved from an empty life! How often we forget and act like the rest of the world that has no hope.

    1 Peter 1:18 For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors.

I am hoping someone at targetdomain share some guidance 🙂 I thought that the very best way to do this would be to talk to vape stores and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if someone could suggest a dependable site where I can purchase Vape Shop B2B Direct Mail List I am currently looking at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com.

All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you can fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.
